In the Netherlands some politicians would say it is all a conspiricy of the Muslims...and mean it for real. Sick political climate...

But seriously: what a great pictures of the WTC area. Hopefully the towers 2 and 4 will be built soon.

Any number of conservative pundits and politicians in the US would say the same thing if you pointed that out to them. Which has me thinking:

Can't you totally imagine that conversation and those criticisms becoming widespread? With Fox News and the Drudge Report and the like all crying that we'd stuck a minaret on top of the WTC?

As insane and shameful as that would be -- the implied correlation between all of Islam and the terrorist extremists who brought down the twin towers is sickening -- you'd think Durst wouldn't want to be associated with that sort of conspiracy talk, which could potentially give him a new reason to cover up the spire...

I feel a little gross playing devil's advocate here, but I can totally imagine that scenario. And however we got there, I bet there're a number of people on this forum who'd be happy about it. Anything to get that damned spire back.

(For the record, I'd like to see more buildings that key off of Islamic architecture, especially Ottoman. The use of domes, arches, columns and especially intricate latticework is all ripe for use in modern highrises. Too bad the examples I've seen going up in the Middle East are for the most part pretty atrocious.)

If those conspiracy theorists would transform their energy and thinking potential to helping people, world would be way better place.

Granted, that little scenario I posited was out of left field...

But of all the buildings where politics are going to be inextricably tied to a discussion of it (from its history, to its construction, its name and symbolism), it's this one. Just because you don't enjoy it as much as pretty pictures doesn't mean it isn't a legitimate topic of conversation.

Keep your political trash out of this thread.

Copy the url of the image's website, and then paste it between these two blocks: [img] url [/img] with no spaces. However, you should create a thread for it in the Creative Corner (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=807), it doesn't exactly belong here.
